Located in the picturesque Bay of Panama, Panama City is fun and cosmopolitan, with modern infrastructure, first class hotels, restaurants, world-class shopping and amazing nightlife.
Panama is the region's safest country for tourists and businessmen.
As part of Central America, Panama is just a short flight from any destination. Many U.S. cities have direct flights to Panama: New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Orlando, Washington D.C., Atlanta, Miami, Houston, Dallas, Las Vegas, New Orleans, San Francisco and Fort Lauderdale.
Panama is one of the few countries where U.S. companies can deduct all expenses of a meeting or convention, just as if it were held in the United States.
Panama is the fifth least expensive capital of the world. The Balboa is, along with the United States dollar, one of the official currencies of Panama. It is named in honor of the Spanish explorer/conquistador Vasco Núñez de Balboa. Balboas are valued the same as the United States dollar. There is no need to exchange money or do calculations to determine your bill totals.
Schedule a tour to visit three cities in Panama: the ruins of the original 16th century Panama City, the city of the 17th century (now named a world heritage site by UNESCO), and the modern capital of today. Day trips include options of riding by speedboat to the beautiful beaches of the islands, eco-tours, visiting an indigenous community in the jungle or playing golf next to a tropical forest.
Panama City is the business center of the Americas and the center of a region of emerging economies - perfect for ensuring that you and your company experience the dynamics and beauty of Latin America.
Rated # 5 in the "100 Trips Throughout Life" by National Geographic, the Panama Canal and its visitor centre are only 20 minutes from the center of Panama City.
